A dental face shield is a critical part of personal protection equipment (PPE) used by people who work in the medical field. Dentists and dental assistants often use face shields. Face shields consist of a clear plastic shield that covers the face, a headband that holds the plastic, and a strap that goes around the back of the head to secure the headband.

A face shield protects against the transmission of viruses and infectious diseases that may be transmitted through saliva, mucus, and blood.

The demand for face shields and other PPE dramatically increased to the COVID-19 pandemic.

3D printed became a popular method used to create parts for dental face shields to help meet the demand.
